The first five ducklings

Muscovy Duck, very popular duck here in Florida, we secretly call them ugly ducks...sorry! Their ducklings are very pretty and we wait for them every spring, and these are the first five I saw this spring! Because of the big birds, herons or Ibis?, not many of them survive the whole 2 or 3 out of 10 chicks will be teenagers , maybe.
This mother looks pretty enough, but male ducks have bumpy red faces and are quite ugly....and aggressive.
